08 Soft Top Leaking After Snow

I am new to forum and this is my first jeep. It is a 08 4 door wrangler. The top has never leaked before but today after the snow the whole top was wet inside. I am afraid that they interior will get moldy. Thanks for your help.

Doesn't look like a problem, just a little condensation. Happened to me in fall during camping, i came to the site late and between drinking and talking to friends, i didn't have time to put up my tent, so i slept in the car. When i woke up in the morning the interior of soft-top was covered in condensation.

So I have now learned what to expect when I put my Rag Top on, after having a "moisture" fiasco with the Freedom Top. Great! Just what I needed to hear...

Anything ELSE bad about the Rag Top???

I have an 06 soft top with the half doors. I live in CT and see all kinds of weather and temp changes, I haven't had any condensation issues on the inside except on rainy days when I'm all wet and get in the Jeep. But as for overnight condensation, I'd recommend letting the inside air out, try running your heater with the A/C switched on. The A/C will dry out the air a little and help get that moisture out of there.

As for down sides to soft tops my only problem is the scratches that show up on the plastic windows, I'm gonna try a plastic conditioner that pilots use on their plexi windows on planes this spring to see if that works. But the ability to drop the top whenever I want far outweighs any complaints I have about it.

I'm in CT as well..perhaps we should get together and talk about the "ins-and-outs" of Jeep ownership. I could learn a few things from you, I'm sure!

Here's a link I got from a recommendation in this forum for a product they liked for conditioning their plastic windows.
